    Who’s the better actress, Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, or Anya Taylor-Joy??

    All three around the same age range and emerging A-list leading actresses who have both movie star charisma and character actor type of talent.

    Vote, sound off in the comments.

    Pugh… She reminds me so much of young Kate Winslet.

    Ronan is too one trick pony for me. She’s been in nothing but period dramas since Brooklyn (Yes, Lady Bird count as Period drama). Has done action in the past (Hanna) but she had terrible run of movies between 2009-2014 with Hanna is perhaps her only good movie in that stretch and she almost got her career killed by that Stephanie Meyer movie adaptation. Brooklyn and Grand Budapest Hotel lucked her out and put her career back in track.

    Taylor-Joy isn’t that different , but I would consider that she transitioned pretty well from Scream Queen in Horror-thriller flicks into more variety of roles like Thoroughbreds and Peaky Blinders. Also has few stinkers (Playmobil and New Mutants) and has been in plenty of Period pieces (Peaky Blinders, Queens Gambit, Last Night in Soho etc)

    Ladybird is not a “period drama”. Yes its set in the early 2000s, but the language, costumes, tone, and feel could have been from any time in the last 10 years.

    I think they’re all too early in their careers to have this discussion. And no, Lady Bird is not “period drama”, come on. People are really caught up in wanting to shade Ronan because of all the nods she’s gotten at a young age. It’s tired. I would like to see her change it up a bit and see her do more European productions.

    Anya has the most interesting screen presence. The other two are pleasent to look at but don’t pop.

    As for range, hard to tell cause some typecasting is definitely happening with Sersh. That said, neither she nor Pugh should have been nominated for Little Women (ditto the movie). They were good buit nothing special to warrant a nomination. We’ve all seen it before. Wide eyed Ronan, manipulative/cunnying Pugh, conflicted Chalamet. Zzzzz.

    So I’m voting Anya for now. I think that she carried The Queen’s gambit better than the other 2 careered movies thye headlined. She has a very iconic look in it which the other two still didn’t achieve.

    Lady Bird is not a period drama. But if we were to entertain the idea that it is a period drama, then Ronan’s performance perfectly depicts her range and authentic mannerism interwoven in the early 2000’s time period that is a warm departure from her performances in Atonement and Brooklyn.

    Ronan is so overrated on this board. She plays basically the same role. I don’t get the hype on Taylor-Joy. Pugh isn’t all that, but I think she’s way more impressive even though her nomination wasn’t deserved. So I go with Pugh

    Lady Gaga is a genius

    When people are successful, there will always be haters. I don’t know how you can say that she has no range when she has displayed her comic chops in The Grand Budapest Hotel and Lady Bird and her dramatic chops in Brooklyn and Little Women. And that she is one note when her characters in each movie is different. She is a four time Academy Award nominee and she doesn’t give a crap about your opinion.

    Love Florence and Anya but Saoirse has been given Academy Award caliber performances since she was a child. Lol

    I also think it’s early for this kind of comparison. Anyway, I like all three of them, but Anya and Saoirse are my favs. I voted for Anya because this girl really came a long way. Who would have thought the girl from The Witch will become one of the most wanted young actresses in Hollywood? I hoped, though. I’ve been following her career since then. I would love to see her in comedy some day.
    I find Saoirse to be extremely talented, but she definitely needs more challenging roles.

    What is intriguing about Taylor Joy is that she can make you fall in love with her character in one project and despised her in others. Gina Gray is so despicable that everyone hates her in Peaky Blinders but Beth Harmon is so lovable in Queens Gambit. Shers has done this with Atonement and Brooklyn, I dont know about Pugh yet, still have to see whether she can play Antagonist/Villainous roles as good as Anya and Sersh.

    Queen Seershuh is the correct answer. And “Lady Bird” is most certainly NOT a “period drama.”

    well one thing for sure All of them are million times better actress than Lady Gaga. Dont get the Taylor Joy hype? her performance in Split will always be better than Gaga’s turn in AHS (Taking horror performances of Both so the comparison is apple to apple)
